for barack obama, you have an uphill fight ahead. >> we do, but i think that the web site, and the new show will change things, if you watch news, so many politics who talk about current evens and way it affects older americans, social security, medicare, but no one is talking -- >> were you pointing to alan what you said older. >> i think she did, yeah. neil: i wanted you to know thatta alan. >> we're going to inherit all this debt, we're talking about spending, and spending, but no one comes to us and says how do you feel? we will have to pay for this, and shoulder it i hope i can be a voice for the next generation, that is my plan, i am excited i old, wise and experimented alan west. >> i don't know if that was a a compliment. neil: she did the same thing here with me. but alan you know how they play the game and avoid tough decisions, both parties, you are critical in both parties in the way they see their responsibilities, you got a loss of flack, some would argue, you lost the campaign because of that you would not ceed your principals because of, that it is a reminder what happened t
. opponents of gun control will be meeting and talking coordinating their efforts on a regular basis. the question how effectively will they do it? the advantage of using obama for america is, is has a gigantic list of people and know a lot about them and how to motivate them and get them out. bill: i still don't know if republicans can counter that. what they found out in november, these people know how to reach their voters! that republicans could not even account for. >> but remember the purpose here. it is not to get that person out to vote. it is to get that person to influence a member of congress to go their way. my point is this, if you're a member of congress who is republican you're sitting here saying these are not local people whose votes we are trying to get. these are partisans. i dompblt need to pay attention. if you're a democrat in awkward place, red district, red state and put awkward place by your president you're saying what the heck are they doing? don't they understand? i can't be for this. bill: we'll watch the points you make especially on the ethics matter. a
. and they also revealed yesterday that he did talk to them and he apologized and their work, sans lance, goes on. >> gretchen: the 2012 campaign ended two months ago, but president obama didn't get the memo. in an unprecedented move, he's turning his reelection campaign into a tax exempt group. they will push his second term agenda. that is expected to include clashes with republicans over the nation's soaring debt. gun control and immigration reform. campaign manager jim messina will leave this new group. it has $5.3 million now in the bank. >> brian: if you live in chicago, you may be saying good-bye to those energy drinks. the democratic councilman wants to ban all drinks that contain a high amount of caffeine. that could mean dr. pepper. it would still allow red bull to be sold, since it contains less caffeine than other drinks. the crackdown goes a step further than a previous one that wanted energy drinks banned for people under 21. >> steve: so they will sell red bull in the home of the bulls. >> brian: yes. >> steve: talk about man's best friend, dna collected from a dog's mouth has help
, you know, actually president obama has signed into law 2.4 trillion dollars worth of debt reduction three quarters of which -- david: that's in the future, that's pie in the sky congresswoman. i'm talking about what's actually been spent. >> i know, and are you suggesting now that we should not pay those bills? is that really what you think? that we should not pay the bi s bills -- that we should not pay the bills? >> what i really think is we're not going to get the spending that we were promised. every time we're promised cutbacks in spending, we don't get it. >> that's into law. there's many many things that very been cut, and we're willing to go further. but to say that we're going to not pay the bills that have been incurred is just lunacy. david: the hardest question i have asked you so far, is evanston illinois still the most beautiful place in the world? >> it is absolutely the most beautiful place. we agree on that. david: i used to live there. congresswoman great to have you. have a wonderful weekend. >> thank you you too. david: appreciate it. liz: in an interview earlie
this. and the europeans. >> rose: i thank you for taking time to come talk with us about this. >> thanks so much, charlie, pleasure. >> just to put this into the context not just of africa but of the broader fight against al qaeda, because president obama has often said that al qaeda is on its way to defeat and it's probably true that the central al qaeda ornization which was one headed by osama bin laden and headquartered in pakistan probably matter a lot less now than a few years ago but what you have seen is that as we pit al qaeda in the core area in afghanistan and pakistan it splintered outward and moved outward. and now are you seeing, you know, like a virus trying to find a body in which it can find a weak host. it's moving out and becoming more powerful in places like yemen, somalia, libya, now mali. so it's moving further and further a field and there are so many weak states because this is where terrorists te rt. they take root in failed states there are so many failed states in africa it is not just mali there are a lot of other places and now increasingly in north
in our d.c. bureau. james, we talked about this as a very fluid, very dangerous situation. what do we now know? >> reporter: jenna, good afternoon. white house officials are now saying president obama is receiving regular updates on this situation which remains as you say ongoing and sensetive. the numbers involved here have varied wildly with the latest from algeria's state news service now saying nearly 100 of 132 hostages seized have been freed. that word comes after algerian security forces launched a helicopter assault on the complex yesterday. 18 of the islamist militants have been reported killed. however there are reports two filipino hostages have died. earlier today britain's prime minister confirmed the death of one britain. he said london received no advance notice of the helicopter raid. >> when i spoke to the algerian prime minister later last night he told me this first operation was complete but this is a large and complex site and they are still pursuing terrorists and possibly some of the hostages in other areas of the site. the algerian prime minister has just told me t

. >> and president obama being sworn in this year on martin luther king day, the significance of that? >> a lot of tremendous symbolism here. first of all he's using martin luther king's bible and the lincoln bible. we're talking about lincoln with the movie. this is the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. there is a monument to dr. king. 50 years after "i have a dream" there is a memorial to this man. this story of race slavery, civil rights and involvement in our history is so important. i think it's really significant to have all these symbols together on this very significant day. >> president barack obama is the 44th american president. we have had 20 two-term presidents. how have two-term presidents fathered? >> recently not so well if we think about recent controversies, they tend to come in the second term. i don't know if that's just a coincidence. bill clinton's impeachment, of course. george bush had a lot of his presidency starting to unravel in the second term. richard nixon, watergate in the second term. for ronald reagan iran contra. it may be th
, that president obama said we're going to have an economist on today on how you get -- you know, we're going to talk to him. he says the one thing that would hurt the economy is in cuts in social security or medicare or medicaid. any type of reform to those things. >> to the true liberal -- >> other than raising taxes up to the level where you fund the promises that we've already made. the entitlements that we've already made and the guarantees we've made, they just want to raise taxes on somebody. i don't know who, to the point where we never actually reform medicare, medicaid or social security. >> the question i want to ask him, is there ever a time that he's making, is it now given where we are in the economy? >> well, the question is, you put in a hundred and you take out 400 in medicare and the government covers 300. >> and it makes no sense. >> well, no, but there are people that think that the government's roll is to provide that 300. and so we should raise taxes to the point where you -- it doesn't matter that you -- >> right. >> it doesn't matter. that is the redistribution. >> tha
. >> president obama of course promised in his first term to take a leadership role on immigration reform. it has been disappointing to many he did not get that moving. he has pledged again to do so. he talked about he wanted to see a bill early on. now he has introduced ideas for gun control. he has another debate over fiscal policy. what does leadership mean in your mind? what to do you want to hear in the state of the union? or is there a better idea something would come from the senate and the president would take a support role? >> it is a good question. part of the problem -- the answer is not another great speech about immigration reform. we need action. this is what happens when immigration reform is important but it is not the number one issue. you can keep on telling it the could you have to take care of the fiscal cliff, which looks like it will go all the way to the end of that term. i do not think it's going to be over soon. guns, i think that has surpassed immigration reform on priorities. i'm not making a judgment. i'm trying to state some facts. you are right, and this has to beco
't want to talk about now. >> because you get to fly on special person's airline. >> stephanie: yeah. here she is jacki schechner. >> good morning, everybody. happy friday. just in time for inauguration the white house is releasing president obama's new official portrait. this photo will now be replaced wait for it -- with this taken last month. both photos are by the white house photographer. i like that one better. he is smiling. the "new york times" reports this morning if inauguration in d.c. feels kind of new york-y that's not by accident. senator chuck schumer from new york is overseeing the planning of the swearing-in ceremony. he is taking the opportunity to throw a little business back home. the bottled water served will be from saratoga springs, and everything from the snack to desert will have new york-grown greed ingredients. the main course was going to be long island duck, but he said the preparation wasn't that great, so now they are going to serve south dakota bison in said. there is news from the new york times that the gop is now considering o
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
